Nabil Elaraby told The Associated Press that the April 29 deadline would be extended "for months" and rejected the idea that the talks have failed to make progress.Under heavy pressure from Kerry, Israel and the Palestinians resumed negotiations last July, agreeing to hold nine months of talks with the aim of reaching a final peace agreement.Elaraby's comments came a day after Arab foreign ministers meeting in the Cairo-headquartered Arab League blamed Israel for the lack of progress in the peace talks and granted Abbas the political and financial covered he wanted in the face of what he sees as Israel's unreasonable approach to the talks.
